MANGOTSFIELD - Cossham Street, Elmleigh Rd Raised Table

Background

The junction between Cossham Street and Elmleigh Road has been identified as a junction which will require safety improvements as part of the Cycle City Route 8, Emersons Green (Sainsburys to Bristol). Proposals for a raised table with footway improvements were originally advertised by the Councils legal team in late 2009/early 2010, however, funding wasn’t available at the time to implement the scheme.

Funding has been made available for a number of schemes that support walking and cycling to schools. This scheme will support walking and cycling to Mangotsfield Secondary School.

Purpose of Scheme

Make it safer for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the road, particularly school children from Mangotsfield Secondary School.

Proposed Scheme

To introduce a 75mm raised table at the junction between Cossham Street and Elmleigh Rd with 1:11 ramps. Dropped crossings with tactile paving and footway resurfacing is included in the proposals.

To remove the tree on the corner of Elmleigh Rd to make the footway more useable especially by pushchair/wheelchair users, subject to feedback from this consultation (in the event the tree is removed, South Gloucestershire Council will fund the planting of 3 new trees).

Marking a consultation as relevant to a particular audience indicates that it may be of special relevance to people within that group. It doesn't, however, mean that other groups wont find the consultation of interest - we welcome responses from everybody.
For example, education issues may be of particular interest to Parents & Guardians, and so will be shown to people searching the system for parenting issues, but the views of others (eg: Business, Faith Groups) are also relevant.

  • All residents
